This is a quick update on the case against YSL, specifically Gunna’s role in everything.
Jewel Wicker is a reporter who was at the hearing this morning, and information referenced in this post has been obtained from her Twitter.
Gunna has been denied bond, meaning for the time being he will remain in jail. His lawyer can appeal this if they decide to. The trial has been set for January 9, 2023, which means if nothing changes Gunna will be in jail until at least next year.
The state is operating under the assumption that YSL, Young Stoner Life, is a criminal organization, not simply a record label, and that Gunna had a leadership role in this criminal enterprise.
Another interesting facet of this case is that the prosecution is trying to use song lyrics and music videos as evidence of the crimes allegedly committed by these rappers.
This brings into question the First Amendment and creative liberties, sparking a lot of debate among both the legal and music worlds.
Guilty or not I know a lot of people are going to be upset their favorite artists are not going to be dropping any music for the time being.
